Four Projected Movements

A single fifteen-minute sweep of a triangular blade of light through 90 degrees, along a wall, becomes four distinct architectural interventions through the agency of the projector.

'This film demonstrates that permutation, within certain precise limits, is a function of the projector. The four movements, each a 15 minute sweep of a plane of light through 90 degrees, result from a single 15 minute reel of film, passed through the projector in the four possible ways. The projector is positioned in a corner of the room so that a wall and the floor establish the boundaries of the space through which the beams will travel. The cycle rpeats through the duration of the presentation.'
